"Fear is a very foolish way to rule a nation, because fear is very tiring over time. No matter how tyrannical the despot, no matter how great the imposed terror; there comes a time when the people simply lack the energy to be afraid any longer, Fear vanishes from the population, and all that is left is blind uncompromising unquenchable rage." -- Michael Rivero

The graphic image of a seven-year-old’s mutilated body hanging by a wall of a damaged building in the Gaza Strip with her legs severed shocked the world last week.

Sidra Hassouna, a resident of northern Gaza, had sought refuge with her family in the southern end of the besieged strip, temporarily declared a “safe zone” by the occupying regime.

On February 14, the regime launched a major overnight attack on Rafah that killed more than a hundred Palestinians sheltering in makeshift tents and deserted streets.

On the same fateful night, a missile struck the place where the Hassouna family had sought refuge, killing the whole family and tearing the body of their little daughter into pieces.

Unsurprisingly, the United States has once again vetoed a UN resolution that calls for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

Israel’s great benefactor used its veto at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday to block the draft prepared by Algeria.

It was the third time Washington has opposed such a resolution since Israel ignited its bloody war machine in Gaza in early October.

Representatives of 13 countries at the 15-member Security Council voted in favor of the resolution. Britain abstained.

The Palestinian envoy to the United Nations Riyad Mansour condemned the US veto as being “absolutely reckless and dangerous.”

For as impossible as their plans are to implement, they still expose America, Germany, and Poland’s strategic intentions, which are worth raising awareness of.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko warned late last week about the Western-backed foreign-based opposition’s planned territorial revisions. According to him, they’re plotting to cede the western half of the country to Poland in exchange for parts of western Russia in the event that the West defeats the latter in their proxy war in Ukraine. Poland used to control that land during the interwar period while the short-lived Belarusian state that emerged after World War I claimed several Russian regions.

KGB Chairman Ivan Tertel told national media in mid-December that his country was bracing for Belgorod-like terrorist incursions from Poland, which has a history of waging Hybrid War against Belarus. The previous conservative-nationalist government tried to orchestrate a Color Revolution there in summer 2020 and then hosted some of the Western-backed opposition afterwards once that failed. The new liberal-globalist one has continued that policy despite subordinating Poland to Germany.

The West wants Ukraine to submit a list of targets inside Russia and provide reasons for striking them, a source told TASS.

"Western sponsors of the Kiev regime link continued deliveries of long-range combat missiles to Ukraine with the effectiveness of their practical use," the source said. "NATO countries that transfer such weapons are well aware that the regime of [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelenskyy uses terrorist methods, using these missiles to strike civilian sites on Russian territory, killing unarmed Russian citizens."

Ukraine had secret torture and burial places in the city of Avdeyevka as per preliminary information, Russian Foreign Ministry special envoy Rodion Miroshnik told Sputnik on Tuesday.

According to the head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Denis Pushilin, many war crimes against the civilian population of Avdeyevka by the Ukrainian armed forces have been recorded.

"We do not exclude the possibility that we will receive information about secret prisons, secret burials and the consequences of torture, about which we have preliminary information. Therefore, this work will now be launched," Miroshnik said.

The Kiev regime’s deep-rooted connection with Ukrainian WWII-era Neo-Nazi movements is an axiom. Denying this is futile, as many of the junta’s soldiers unashamedly display Nazi insignia, while the state-sponsored promotion of the cult of Nazi collaborators such as Stepan Bandera, Yaroslav Stetsko, Roman Shukhevych and others of their ilk is a clear proof that this isn’t some spontaneous reaction of an extremist minority, but a carefully orchestrated policy. In the last decade, there has been a systematic whitewashing of Nazism, with an entire generation of children and young people raised to essentially adore the aforementioned figures. Many soldiers of the Kiev regime who have been fighting in the last several years were just kids at the time when NATO organized the Maidan coup that brought the Neo-Nazi junta to power and pushed Ukraine into the ongoing bloodbath.

These children (many in their 20s now) were radicalized into thinking that the ideology that quite literally sees them as “Untermenschen” is something “good” or even “desirable”. They were never told what Hitler’s Generalplan Ost included and that they would’ve almost certainly never even been born had Nazi Germany succeeded in its genocidal intentions of global proportions. Worse yet, they’ve been convinced that the Russians, their closest kin (historically, genetically, culturally, religiously, you name it), are their “mortal enemy”. Not to mention the fact that the only reason why there are Ukrainians nowadays at all is precisely the victory won by tens of millions of Russians and other peoples of the Soviet Union. This hard-fought triumph was paid for in blood, with nearly 30 million people slaughtered in the most brutal ways imaginable, at least seven million of whom were from Ukraine.

Illegal trafficking of human organs is currently one of the most discussed aspects of the criminal world, alongside the illegal drug and weapon trade. Surprisingly, Ukraine has become one of the most active suppliers of human organs, despite being primarily associated with countries in Latin America. Since the start of the conflict on its soil, involving Russia, Ukraine has seen an emergence of black transplantologists who operate in the shadows.

These individuals target destroyed military units and extract bodies, leaving behind missing soldiers who mysteriously disappeared during the incidents. Recently, evidence of their activities has surfaced in the Odessa region, where soldiers from the 41st Separate Guards Motorized Rifle Brigade and the 122nd Territorial Defense Troops were essentially “harvested.”

The cemetery in Odessa has seen an increase in fresh graves, marked with signs that read “SURGICAL WASTE.”

The EU is set to adopt another round of sanctions on Russia which will affect the supply of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to the country, among other things, according to German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.

The package is almost finalized, Baerbock said on Monday, ahead of a meeting with her counterparts in Brussels. EU foreign ministers are set to discuss the bloc’s 13th round of sanctions before February 24, the second anniversary of the launch of Russia’s military operation against Ukraine.

Hungary is the only EU state yet to approve the proposed restrictions, which would reportedly target 200 individuals and entities, mostly from Russia. According to media reports, citing European diplomats, the EU is planning for the first time to sanction companies in mainland China and in other countries including Türkiye, India, and Serbia, for helping Moscow circumvent sanctions by allegedly supplying it with components that can be repurposed for use in drones and other weapon systems.

Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala has claimed farmers protesting against EU agriculture policies, environmental requirements and high energy prices are “supporters of Russia”.

On Monday, hundreds of tractors blocked off sections of Prague and disrupted traffic outside the country’s Agriculture Ministry as demonstrators demanded that the EU’s Green Deal, which calls for regulations on the use of certain chemicals and greenhouse gas emissions, be rejected.

The farmers have argued that the Brussels' proposals place a heavy burden on their businesses, making products more expensive and less competitive, especially when compared to non-EU imports, such as those coming from Ukraine.

A massive fire broke out at a French industrial site used for recycling hybrid and electric car batteries on Saturday, sending thick clouds of smoke into the air.

The town of Viviez in the department of Aveyron in Southern France was shrouded by black clouds of smoke after a fire broke out at a warehouse used to hold hybrid and electric car lithium batteries. Overall, the site held an estimated 900 tonnes of lithium batteries, however, officials claimed that the cause of the fire has still not been determined, Le Figaro reports.

A “preventive confinement over a radius of 500 meters” was initially put in place surrounding the site on Saturday afternoon but it was later lifted in the evening after it was determined that the smoke did not present a danger.

A recent small claims court decision found Air Canada liable for incorrect advice given by its website chatbot that led to a grieving customer paying more for plane tickets. Incredibly, the airline argued that its AI chatbot is “a separate legal entity responsible for its own actions.”

CBC reports that Jake Moffatt was looking to book last-minute plane tickets from British Columbia to Toronto after the death of his grandmother. While on Air Canada’s website, he used the customer service chatbot to ask about getting bereavement fares and the AI chatbot advised that if Moffatt booked full-price tickets immediately, he could submit a refund application within 90 days to get the cheaper bereavement rate.

Trusting this advice, Moffatt booked tickets for a total of $1,630. However, after completing the trip, Air Canada informed him that bereavement discounts don’t apply retroactively to already-purchased tickets. When Moffatt complained and showed a screenshot of the chatbot’s guidance, an Air Canada rep admitted the chatbot had provided “misleading words” but said the company had updated the system.

Unhappy with this resolution, Moffatt took Air Canada to small claims court. In a legal filing, Air Canada argued argued that its chatbot is “a separate legal entity responsible for its own actions.” But adjudicator Christopher Rivers called this “a remarkable submission,” stating that Air Canada owns its website and chatbot.

The organization Gays & Lesbians Living in a Transgender Society (GLITS) on Tuesday announced that it would hold a press conference Wednesday “to request an explanation from St. Patrick’s Cathedral” for what they described as “cutting short the funeral mass service of Cecilia Gentili.”

In a press release sent via email, GLITS stated that its press conference would be held at noon on Wednesday, February 21, at City Hall Park. The organization said it will demand “a public apology” for the “painfully dismissive and exclusionary language” the Cathedral used in a statement after the scandalous incident.

As CatholicVote previously reported:

On Thursday, February 15, a crowd of LGBTQ activists held a funeral for Cecilia Gentili at the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, New York. Gentili was “a transgender activist and actress, former sex worker and self-professed atheist,” according to the New York Times. Gentili passed away on February 6 at age 52. 

The mob … eulogized [Gentili] as: “This whore. This great whore. St. Cecilia, Mother of all Whores!”

During the service, participants, many of them wearing extravagant drag, repeatedly interrupted the priest and broke into loud chants. One reveler took to the podium to pray for “access” to “gender-affirming healthcare” – a cause the Catholic Church opposes.

A big data study of 99 million people across eight countries showed greater than expected incidence of side effects from various Covid-19 vaccines, the Global Vaccine Data Network (GVDN) said on Monday.

The study, originally published in the medical journal Vaccine on February 12, looked at 13 neurological, blood, and heart-related conditions, called “adverse events of special interest.” Researchers looked at 99,068,901 vaccinated individuals from ten sites in eight countries.

“The size of the population in this study increased the possibility of identifying rare potential vaccine safety signals,” said Kristyna Faksova, the lead author of the study from the Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen, Denmark.

According to the GVDN, the study observed a greater incidence of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the heart sac) than expected among those who took the Pfizer/BioNTech (BNT162b2) and Moderna (mRNA-1273) shots.

Tyrannical leftist New York Attorney General Letitia James has revealed she is prepared to seize (steal) President Trump’s assets if he cannot pay the outrageous court fine as ordered by compromised Judge Arthur Engoron.

“If he does not have funds to pay off the judgment, then we will seek judgment enforcement mechanisms in court, and we will ask the judge to seize his assets,” James told ABC News.

As the Gateway Pundit reported, Engoron fined Trump $355 million and banned him from doing business in New York City for the next three years. Engoron claimed Trump “participated in aiding and abetting the conspiracy to commit insurance fraud by their individual acts in falsifying business records and valuations, causing materially fraudulent SFCs to be intentionally submitted to insurance companies.”

This is nothing but garbage, however. As Jim Hoft notes, the banks did their due diligence before they loaned Trump the money and testified they would gladly do it again.

Trump is vowing to appeal the charges and has accused Engoron of conspiring with James.

Nancy Pelosi has once again floated the tired conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is controlled by Vladimir Putin, and that the Russian leader is blackmailing Trump with “something financial.”

Appearing on MSNBC with Democrat mouthpiece Jen Psaki, the pair claimed Trump is a “fanboy” of Putin and that he “encourages” Putin to invade NATO countries.

“Putin is among the top three or four evil people in the world,” Pelosi ranted, before stating “What does he have on Donald Trump that he has to be constantly catering to Putin?”

She went on to claim that Trump, whose name she struggled to remember, has “brought disgrace,” to the White House and “didn’t consider it an honour” to serve as President or take seriously the oath to defend the Constitution.

“He is a person without values,” Pelosi further whined, adding “he looks like he’s going to be a person without dollars either,” gloating about the clearly political indictments against Trump.

“I don’t know what [Putin] has on him, but it’s probably financial, or something on the come, something he expects to get,” Pelosi hissed.

Claire's Observations:  Nancy, it's over; what you are doing is lying with no foundation, typical for you, but the alleged "Trump?Russia Collusion" has already been well and truly debunked by  a huge investigation, costing taxpayers millions, but ultimately proving the polar opposite to your claims. PLEASE COME BACK TO THE PEOPLE WHEN YOU HAVE SOMETHING APPROXIMATING REALITY TO SHARE  OK?!?!?

A record 7.3 million illegal aliens have crossed the southwest border under President Biden's watch, a number which according to Fox News.is greater than the population of 36 individual states.

That figure is sourced from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which has already reported 961,537 Southwest land border encounters in the current fiscal year, which runs from October through September, and if the current pace of illegal immigration does not slow down, fiscal year 2024 will break last year's record of 2,475,669 southwest border encounters — a number that by itself exceeds the population of New Mexico.

The total number of southwest land border encounters since Biden assumed office in 2021 is 7,298,486, CBP data shows

Claire's Observations:  7 million illegal aliens have crossed the US border, under Biden's Administration?!?  He should be indicted for treason, period, end of discussion.

Biden Says He’ll Impose ‘Major’ Sanctions on Russia Over Navalny’s Death

President Biden on Tuesday said his administration would be announcing “major sanctions” on Russia over the death of Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny.

“What I came to tell you was we’d be announcing sanctions on Russia. We’ll have a major package announced on Friday,” Biden told reporters before boarding Marine One for a trip to the West Coast.

White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby also said the US would be announcing a “major” sanctions package on Friday. Kirby said the sanctions aim to “hold Russia accountable for what happened to Mr. Navalny, and quite frankly, for all its actions over the course of this vicious and brutal war that has now raged on for two years.”

Kirby would not offer any details on the sanctions when asked, and it’s unclear what steps the US could take since it’s already imposed so many sanctions on Russia.

The combination of challenges facing agencies attempting to distribute aid in the Strip has forced the UN World Food Program to halt deliveries to the northern half of Gaza. Assistance to the north has been cut off for nearly three weeks. An Israeli airstrike on an aid convoy caused the initial pause in shipments. People in that region are eating plants, weeds, grass, and animal feed in an attempt to survive. 

The children in Gaza face a dire situation that can become lethal. 90% of children under five face food poverty, and 70% have recently had diarrhea. The combination of starvation and diarrhea can be fatal for children

"Douglas Murray is Director of the British Free Speech Union. He is now going to lead an initiative to have harsher penalties for those accused of hate speech, and bar 'bigots' from employment opportunities based on social media posts!" Keith Woods commented on X. 

"These speech laws have been used to target nationalists more than anyone -- Murray's countryman Sam Melia is going to jail for sharing stickers about mass-immigration and this is what he is working on, what a disgrace!"

Israel Is Assaulting Hospitals in Gaza with Full US. Support

Hospitals should be places of healing, not theaters of war

by Kathy Kelly Posted on February 21, 2024

Many decades ago in Chicago, my favorite of several part-time student jobs was operating the “old-style” telephone switchboard at a small hospital called Forkosh Memorial. The console of coils and plugs included a mirror so operators could keep an eye on the hospital entrance, which on weekends and evenings was also monitored by an elderly, unarmed security guard named Frank. He sat at a classroom style desk near the entrance with a ledger book. Over the course of four years, on weekends and evenings, “security” at the hospital generally consisted solely of Frank and me. Fortunately, nothing much ever happened. The possibility of an attack, invasion or raid never occurred to us. The notion of an aerial bombardment was unimaginable, like something out of “War of the Worlds” or some other sci-fi fantasy.

Now, tragically, hospitals in Gaza and the West Bank have been attacked, invaded, bombed and destroyed. News of additional Israeli attacks is being reported on a daily basis. Last week, Democracy Now! interviewed Dr. Yasser Khan, a Canadian ophthalmologist and eye surgeon who recently returned from a humanitarian surgical mission at the European Hospital in Khan Yunis in Gaza. Dr. Khan spoke of bombings taking place every few hours resulting in a constant influx of mass casualties. The majority of patients he treated were children from age 2 to 17. He saw horrific eye injuries, shattered faces, shrapnel wounds, abdominal injuries, limbs severed above the bone, and traumas caused by drone launched laser guided missiles. Amid the overcrowding and chaos, health care workers tended to patients while lacking basic equipment, including anesthesia. Patients lay on the ground in unsterile conditions, vulnerable to infection and disease. Most of them also suffered from severe hunger.

Normally, a child who undergoes an amputation faces as many as twelve additional surgeries.  Khan wondered who would do the follow-up care for these children, some of whom have no surviving relatives?
